    Here's a walk behind striper I've been looking at:

    http://www2.yardiac.com/long.asp?item_id=8936

    Have any of you used one or one similiar? It claims to be mountable (my wife does too, but I'm skeptical :D ) on most all models but I'm sure mine will be the only one where it would be a chore. I have a gold series Lawn Boy. Its probably 10 years old now.

    Thanks...

    Never used it, but your wife wasn't lying!
    (sorry, but you left yourself open for that one. :laugh: )

    Yes I use one. I have it on a Snapper 21".

    It does a good job. I have about 30lb of shotgun shot in mine and I had to glue and put small screws around the ends to keep it from separating.

    I have had mine for almost three and it does work.

    I will try to post some pictures if I have time, but mine look as good as the one in the ad on the top right.

    Thank you, I like it too. I filled it up with sand and two boxes of BB's. I like that you can't see tire lines, just stripes. They said the only mower it wouldn't fit on is a pro-line.

    The more I look at the pics it looks like you were mowing at two different heights. I guess that happens when you have a lush, green lawn like yours. Once again, it looks great.
